“Sometimes it falls on generation to be  great. You can be that great generation. Let your greatness blossom.”

~ Nelson Mandela, Launch of the ‘Make Poverty History’ campaign, Trafalgar Square, London, England, 3 February 2005

Together, we are that generation. 

Habitat for Humanity has been improving people’s lives all over the world since 1976. We’ve helped over 4 million people.

Here in South Africa, we’ve hosted over 18,000 inspired volunteers since 1996. People tend to think we’re all about building houses. But it’s about so much more than that.

For us, it’s a holistic process. We work with the community. We work with families. We work with the government and private citizens and corporations. And through our people centred approach we help communities address, improve and self-manage their development to sustain their economic futures. We’re also respected advocates in housing and community development policy.

We’re playing our part. We’re changing South Africa. And we’re so excited to welcome you.

Together, we ARE that great generation.  Join us today.

“It is in your hands to make a better world for all who live in it.”

~ Nelson Mandela, at the Nelson Mandela Foundation, 30 June 2009

For us it's not about just building houses, but building community. We strive to create sustainability and spread knowledge and involvement in the communities that we partner with. This video highlights what can be accomplished when individuals get involved and work together. When everyone contributes to the community we all benefit and come one step closer to the South Africa of our dreams. You can get involved right now with our upcoming build event in Mfuleni from October 3rd-7th. More information on the event can be found under our Events section or on our website!
